    "Hijacks the NVIDIA GPU kills battery life by half"

    February 1, 2012  |   By summerstormpictures

    Pros

    An inspired but rather confused interface.

    Cons

    My 5-plus hours of battery life drops to 2.5 or less if I leave this application open.

    Summary

    The developers must not ever go mobile because they seem to be uninspired to economize. My 5-plus hours of battery life drops to 2.5 or less if I leave this application open. Why is it necessary for this to use the NVIDIA GPU? This is the same fail the developers at Mozilla have. Their web browser, while smart enough not to use the NVIDIA GPU, once it is spun off into a process, it is not smart enough to give it back (switch back to the Intel onboard chipset. It's really high time developers stop this practice. Unless you are working with multimedia, there's no reason to use the NVIDIA chipset. None.
